  • To correct you, they don't know exactly what caused the explosion. There were a series of failings starting with the Minerals management guys who were to busy looking at porn to do their jobs. Yes, BP could have cut corners or might not have stopped the well as soon as they should have but "stuff" happens and there is plenty of blame to go around so don't use blanket statements that will lead people to think you know what you are talking about.
    Maybe if everyone would put their energies into cleaning up this spill like they do casting blame things would be going much better for our precious wildlife and ecosystem.

  • I can't get on a plane and go wash animals with dawn. I have babies to nurse, a job to go to, and liberals to annoy.

    Sorry, yes they do. High pressure methane from within the well shot out and ignited. 11 workers were never found by Coast Guard Search and rescue and are presumed dead. The rig burned for 36 hours then sank. The slick started appearing the next day, but several BP officials claimed that ROV's showed no damage to the wellhead.
    A comprehensive review of 18 blowouts have shown that in every single instance, the drilling mud used was lightened and thinned (meaning it did not have the proper viscosity or thickness). Defoamers are often added to try to restore the muds properties, but the only way to really ensure that it's fixed is to replace the mud. Once the mud is cut with gas, it's considered a toxic waste and must be disposed of in a particular, costly manner. This was not done, Hallibrton was pumping cement with drilling mud that looked like a beer head.
